My review of the Ati Teas by Kaplan covers the four main areas of preparation for the state exam. I decided to focus my review on the nursing theory part. This part gave me a good background in the areas of biology, ethics, sociology and medical law. I gained valuable insights into legal issues such as the definition of legal paternity, maternity leave rights, and medical malpractice liability. By gaining this knowledge I was able to better communicate with my professors and understand their arguments and motivations.
On the home study section of the Ati Teas by Kaplan you will find information on nutrition and anatomy, which I think are very important parts of taking the state exam. I also learned that taking one of the five practice tests by Kaplan will give you a pretty good idea of how much of the material you will have to cover during the actual exam. The review pages give you an overview of the material covered on the four chapters of the test. There are eleven chapters including the chapter on ethics, sociology, medical law, biology, and nutrition.
After going over the basics I went into the meat of the course which is the chapter on health care. This chapter has two major objectives. One, it gives you an overview of the role of health care in American society. Two, it helps you analyze the different perspectives of American health care. These are: rationing of healthcare and individual freedom.
Chapter two covers the four health care topics that are on the test. I really liked these four topics, because they build on the concepts from the previous chapter. These four topics include medical insurance, health maintenance organizations (HMOs), managed care, and prepaid Medicare. Medical insurance is important because it covers your treatment should you become ill. In addition, HMOs and MCOs can provide low cost or free health care. Chapter two also touches on the different types of managed care plans including indemnity plans, point of service plans, and point of service plans.
The last topic that will be covered on the final page of the Ati Teas practice test cover is individual freedom. Individual freedom means that you are able to choose the doctor, dentist, hospital, and any other medical professional that you want to use. Although most medical professionals are going to be using the Ati Teas system during your first year, there are a few exceptions.
The last four topics that will cover on the Ati Teas review are government regulation, international business, and risk management. Government regulation and international business relate to taxes, rules, and regulations. Risk management deals with how you should evaluate the risk of certain medical procedures and treatments. Lastly, the last topic is about how the Ati Teas system will affect you after you graduate and become an Ati Tea Master.
After reading this review, you should have a good idea of what the Ati Tea Certification Program entails. This exam is not as long or complicated as some of the others that are available. The only real difference is that there are only ten questions that must be answered correctly in order to pass. You also have the option to purchase the Ati Teas Study Guide so you will know the five questions that cover all areas discussed in this article. This review should be able to help you pass your test without too much trouble.
